Summer is winding down quickly and it’s almost back-to-school time for students in Missouri.

The Department of Revenue announced Thursday the state's annual Sales Tax Holiday will begin on Friday, Aug. 2 and runs through Sun., Aug. 4.

During that weekend, shoppers will not have to pay state sales tax on school supplies, personal computers and some clothing.  Any person who make a qualified purchase can participate in the holiday and they do not need to be a student.
